Pilgrims not strangers

Take us from where we are, to where you want us to be;
make us not merely guardians of a heritage, but living signs of your coming Kingdom;
fire us with passion for justice and peace between all people;
fill us with that faith, hope and love which embody the Gospel;
and through the power of the Holy Spirit make us one.
That the world may believe, that your name may be enthroned in our nation,
that your church may more effectively be your body,
we commit ourselves to love you, serve you,
and follow you as pilgrims not strangers.

(ACTS commitment, Inaugural Service of Action of Churches Together in Scotland)
